Kundalini Yoga is a series of yoga practices that use a holistic and balanced approach to create and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. The practice of Kundalini Yoga originated in India about 5,000 years ago.
The best Kundalini yoga poses include movements between asanas, chants, meditation, and pranayama techniques to awaken and nourish the Kundalini Shakti energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine.
According to ancient Vedic wisdom, the Kundalini Shakti energy is coiled three and a half times at the base of each person's spine. When the Kundalini Shakti energy is awakened, joy, wisdom, peace, creativity and great energy are released.
The Kundalini energy naturally heals and transforms and can bring us to oneness with the divine essence of all reality.
The ultimate goal of Kundalini Yoga is to awaken the Kundalini energy and nourish the energy as it ascends and penetrates the seven chakras, culminating in the seventh chakra, Sahasrara, at the top of the skull. When the Kundalini Shakti penetrates the Sahasrara Chakra, great happiness and deep knowledge of divinity arise.
There are many other benefits of Kundalini practice. One of the most important physical benefits of regular practice of Kundalini yoga is an optimally balanced endocrine system. When your hormones are in balance, a feeling of well-being quickly emerges.
